Global Studios and Audiotopias, a project led by sound engineer, music producer, recording studio director, and musician Emily Evans, explores virtual hybridity as a model for musical collaboration and composition. Audiotopia, coined by scholar, writer, journalist, teacher, and curator Josh Kun, describes music’s ability to create a unique virtual world for the listener in which “contradictions and conflicts do not cancel each other out but coexist and live through each other.” Using remote technology, Global Studios and Audiotopias presents the virtual and the global alongside the actual and the local.  The project features artists from around the world including Francis Ayamga’s Top Link Music Band (Bongo, Ghana), The Meridian Brothers (Bogotá, Colombia), Dustin Wong (Los Angeles, US), Takako Minekawa (Tokyo, Japan), MC Yallah (Kampala, Uganda), and Debmaster (Berlin, Germany).
